I have a multiple choice list of roles and added a comment box for “other.” However, none of the comment box entries show up when I download to SPSS.
The Comments field you can attach directly to a question doesn’t show in SPSS. That’s why it isn’t showing up there for you. You can add a following Textbox or Essay question to get those answer in SPSS though.
Is the comment text its own question? What question type are you using specifically? Is it s checkbox question that has one ‘other’ box?
Sorry for all the questions, just trying to get an idea of what you are up against…
Sorry, the question is a drop down menu…
No problem…there is a list of about a dozen occupations, with the final option being “Other.” After other, there is a comment (text) box for the respondent to fill in, but it is not it’s own question. Those answers don’t appear when I download the data into SPSS.
